Manny's height is around 163 centimeters and the average height of western men are 174 centimeters.

Floyd has fought taller men and his style suited against taller men.

If Manny fights conservative plus with his high rate of work, he can surely adapt the style.

He would have been undefeated, why is it not too late to adapt such a style?

Boxers have different natural born talents. Floyd has incredible reflexes, defensive skills, and great counter-punching. Pacquiao has incredible speed, power, stamina, and relentless pressure.

TS...I'm curious when did you start watching Manny?
The 1.0 Version (Before Freddy) was an extremely raw fighter that brawled to land that powerful left hand.
And he still lost twice during this era before he was really taught solid boxing techniques.
The 2.0 Version (Prime/Freddy Era) Freddy had to instill Technique into Manny's Style, especially after loss to El Terrible
The 3.0 Version (Post Margarito-2012 to Present) Did rely more on Boxing than Fighting and as such, suffered in PPV Buys.

Manny Pacquiao is a Brand...A Powerful, In your Face, Frenetic Whirlwind Bull in a China Shop, Knockout Artist.
As Roy Jones JR stated: Manny Pacquiao SAVED Boxing...

Now that Manny Pacquiao showed some signs of the Old Vintage 2.0 in training camp, The Thurman bout generated excitement.

In fact, at my work and my Facebook page, people are still talking about that Great Fight on July 20
That has happened in my community for YEARS....

At Welter Manny gives up height and Reach so he isn't big enough at Welterweight to Potshot from the outside.

But if Manny was just another "Pure Boxer" He would not be PPV Worthy.... Ask Andre Ward about that.

The main reason FLOYD is PPV worthy is a loyal following, the rest watch hoping to see him lose
If Floyd ever lost a single match, only his loyal fanbase would care to buy another PPV.

He wouldn't have learned new techniques if he didn't lose. And it would be boring to watch him if fight like Floyd.

If he do that there will be no 8th division world champion in boxing history.
